CHNC challenge 178: Christmas in your country


This is my card for CHNC challenge 178: Christmas in your country - I'd like to see something on your card that makes you think of Christmas in your country - it might be something seasonal or a particular national celebration or tradition ... I'm sure you will have ideas. For instance, I have used a picture with a typically British pillar box, as well as a snowy scene that is traditionally thought of at Christmas. Also, lace is quite widely used in the UK.

For my card I've used 'snowy postbox' a digital image by Delicious Doodles (one of today's sponsors), colouring just the pillar box with a red spectrum noir. The background paper is from the Authentique peaceful collection (I do love these papers and am sorry that I'm gradually using them up). Lace and Craftime flowers from stash.

I based the card on the sketch given for Crazy challenge 171 (too late to actually join the challenge though, but still wanted to acknowledge it):
